If the good Lord is willing and the creek don't rise; maybe I'll even wash it.

Well, I did it.

I cleaned my car.

What?  You don't think this is noteworthy?  Have I mentioned that I haven't cleaned my car in....well, let's just say that I can't remember the last time I cleaned it.

But for some reason today, when I got in it I was disgusted.  Apparently, when I get into my car the only thing I can see is whatever is right outside the windshield in front of me.


So, I made up my mind...that TODAY would be the day that it was cleaned.  Of course, as it's not the weekend, this meant that after a full day at work, on a MONDAY, I might add, I would have to come home and actually DO something other than put on my pj's and surf the 'Net.  The horror.

But I did it.  I gathered all my cleaning supplies, the unwieldy Shop-Vac and dove in.  It took me over an hour to just dust, vacuum and sanitize all the surfaces in that car.  AN HOUR and it's just a mid-size (if you want to be generous) sedan!  Needless to say, I earned that glass of wine or two after I was done.

The car is officially clean and I am seriously surprised that I haven't yet contracted MRSA or some equally horrifying disease from the disgusting amount of crud I'd been driving around in for however long it's been.  I count myself fortunate.

As they say, God looks out for fools, drunks, small children and, apparently, people with filthy cars.


  1. Tuesday will be a nice, clean ride!

  2. My car is ready (over-ready) for a cleaning. You might have inspired me to do it! Good for you for getting it done, Gigi! :-)

  3. I have owned the car for 16 months. Bought it BRAND NEW.

    Vacuumed it out for the first time yesterday.

    Great minds think alike. :)
